This technology provides highly accurate and precise information about the rock mass.
The drilling process and rock interpretation can be displayed in real time to the operator and sent with modern technology to users of ROCKMA GPM + Office Software.
The rock properties we calculate/present are normally:
◾ The rock compressive strength ( UCS ) presented in MPa
◾ Fractures, presented as fracture frequency (%) or RQD
◾ Water conditions of the rock mass
◾ Blasting properties
◾ Grouting / classes
◾ Rock support
◾ Ore / waste
◾ Also other properties can be calibrated against if reference data are available
Drilling process raw data, that we use as a basis for our calculations is often called:
◾ MWD (Measurement While Drilling)
◾ Drill monitoring
◾ Also other names occurs for the process of collecting drill data
Many types of drill rigs are equipped with a system for the collection of data, in those cases , we use that data. If the drill rig doesn’t have this pre-installed then we have a complete system for this.
We also supply high – precision GPS and complete management systems.
